Marathon PR by 35 minutes on a hilly, windy course. I wore my hydration vest because I tried my best to treat this like a training run. The headwind the first half was awful. In the second half, I passed 4 people, which was nice. I slowed a little on the last few hills. Overall, I had an enjoyable time though.
I got 1st master ($150 award) because the real 1st master finished 2nd overall ($250 award). That was an unexpected bonus for me. I couldn't really tell where I was in the field because we took off with 137 halfers. Once they split off at mile 8, I slowly ran down everyone I saw in front of me. But there was a 23 minute gap between me and 4th place, so that guy was clearly out of reach!
